I would have rated 5stars except the first one that arrived could not be assembled because the connection/pieces that should have screwed together were stripped. I had hoped to have up before guests based on when that one arrived. That said, the new one is beautiful and was easy to assemble.
I love the look of this lamp! Its unique, eye catching, and works well as it is pretty heavy so wind will not blow it away. I have it on top of the outside table in the center, and it really makes the patio look better. I love how its handmade too and real rock.
I bought this because the listing said suitable for wet locations. It is for an open pergola. Well, they don't mean wet as in outside where it gets rained on. If so, the little cup on the bottom (where the wires are connected) fills with water because the rain flows down the chain and into the chandelier. I resolved the issue by forcing a lot of clear acrylic caulk into the hole on the top where the wires go in and so the water does not get in now. Also, it seems kind of flimsy for the price, but it is brass so that costs more than aluminum.
I bought this lamp to be on our outside covered porch when we want to read. We assembled it and had it in another room, ready to go on the porch, when I noticed the top part rusting and paint peeling off. I had it less than a week and hadn't even used it yet. I called Overstock and the customer service was very helpful. I just am getting bothered by receiving defective or damaged merchandise. I know it happens but I seem to be receiving some damaged items that should not be sent out. I want better quality control. Otherwise the lamp is very nice and a great design. Perfect for a tropical home or porch. It also gives a good deal of direct light, good for reading or doing detailed work.
